The corrupt Earth government is sending an army to Greenwood to remove the pioneers who discovered and settled the planet: the potential profits are too great to leave the world to scraggly ne'er-do-wells!             Though the rugged individualists of Greenwood may be fractious and disinclined to agree on most things, the greedy politicians of Earth will learn a harsh lesson if they think the settlers won't join together to save their livelihoods and homes! Under Yerby Bannock, who never walked away from a drink or a fight, the Greenwood patriots will face thugs in the night, lawyers in a distant court, traitors in their own ranks--             And, if they have to, a fortress built to shrug off the assault of a battlefleet!… (mere)

My reactions to reading this novel in 1997. Spoilers follow.

”Author’s Note: Truth Heroism and Other Confusing Subjects” -- Drake says this novel is a sf version of the story of Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys. Drake briefly relates the real story of Ethan Allen and his character. While he thinks there is an historical truth and that history has real heroes, he doubts we can ever pin down the true motives for their actions or even all of our past actions.

"Patriots" -- Moderately entertaining sf version of Ethan Allen’s story (ending with the planet Greenwood’s independence). Less action than other Drake novels I’ve read and more politics. The usual emphasis of war’s horrors is here done via the unexpected revelation that Mark Lucius’ father, Maxwell, was a former commando. Maxwell constantly disparages, throughout the novel, and says soldiering is an unfit trade for a moral, thinking man. ( )
